I don’t want to add to the mountain of anecdotal coincidences that already muddle the health-matters domain when they are treated as “fact” but I want to share these observations about my own hay fever symptoms in relation to gluten consumption in case they hold any substance. As celebrated in one of my earlier posts … Continue reading Some thoughts on hay fever and gluten
To open up to tuning-in – directly – to the food that best serves us as an individual – is self-empowerment realised; and is the most direct way to achieving optimum health and all the trimmings that come with that (including ideal body weight, strong bones, balanced hormones and longevity). How do we do this, do we have to learn a whole new skill set? No, we just listen to all the overt and more subtle clues our body is so diligently presenting to us. Believe me, the natural high you get when you effortlessly sync with your body’s most direct food requests and then allow your instincts to take over how you interact with that food to create colourful, ingenious, deeply-satisfying meals is the stuff of divine inspiration; its like playing in heaven’s kitchen.When you live in a place of joy and highly-tuned instinct around food you eat when you are hungry and you know just what to eat when you do; how easy can it get? After just a few months of living consistently like this, your body starts to trust that you are listening to it and delivering what it most needs in order to thrive...Its like the body lets out one enormous sigh of relief and sheds all of its stored-up layers of surplus fat and so much emotional baggage too…because it is now striving to meet the higher vibration of all the wonderful food you are delivering to it. It very quickly and easily drops all that old weight over the side, like so much unnecessary ballast, before taking off for the ride of its life and the sheer exhilaration of how different your body can feel is palpable; a very different way of experiencing life in human form.
A few days of extreme fibro-fog sent me off on a path of research that opened up even more doors of profound understanding than ever; showing me how the feedback loop that we are (within our own bodies and far beyond) exists in the ecstasy of harmonic flow...except when its 'glued' together by - well - to get into all that I suggest you read on as there's no pocket version of what I found out. Another one of my more substantial posts but with a lot of playful exploration and optimism inside for anyone who experiences fibro-fog or so-called chronic illness.
The same should apply to us all really; if you get to know your triggers in life you can smartly side-step them or at least minimise the impact they have on you. If fibromyalgia is part of your picture, you very likely have multiple triggers that can set off a flare-up of symptoms. So my … Continue reading Know your triggers
